We invite the community to participate in our mission and vision for natural resources conservation in Prince William County. There are many opportunities to get involved in helping us make a difference in our part of the world. I invite you to join us.
Over the past ten years
the District has diligently worked with our agricultural producers to give technical assistance to support natural resources conservation through conservation planning, nutrient management planning, and best management practices,
to improve water quality in our water ways and build soil health
for overall improvements of production and efficiency.
*Conservation planners have written 547 plans, representing 103,161 pounds of nitrogen reduction and 6,566
phosphorous reduction to improve water quality
*Adopt A Stream program volunteers cleaned 429 miles of waterways netting 278,136 pounds of trash removed from the waterways
*Our Education Specialists have provided Natural Resources Conservation and Environmental Science Education to 112,132 students
in grades 1-12 in Prince William County, City of Manassas public schools, home schooled, private schooled, and youth groups representing 5,651 teachers supported through our programs. Our Conservation Capsule To-Go program provides a lesson in a tub, delivered to the school, as a resource for the teachers
*Our annual signature event is Farm Field Days
which began in 1989 as field trips to local farmers, expanded over the years until 1992 when the event was moved to the Prince William Fairgrounds. We celebrate our 27th annual Farm Field Days (expanded to two days) in October 2016 -
23,981 fourth grade students have attended Farm Field days since 1996
*The District has held Arbor Day Ceremonies at elementary schools for the Board of County Supervisors for the last thirty years. Over the years the program evolved from a statewise poster contest, ceremonies at the McCoart building with Supervisors in attendance, tree plantings at schools, tree ceremonies at schools tailored by the faculty - 11,733 students have participated in Arbor Day Ceremonies
These are some of the long standing programs and deliverables to the county and state. Effective this year our county funding for education has been redirected to conservation-on-the ground projects due to the Save the Chesapeake Bay efforts of all the states in this watershed. We know environmental and natural resources education are key to the future generations, in understanding the human impact on the environment, to make the changes necessary.
